“Here now, for the first time in a complete English translation, we have Camus’s three little volumes of essays, plus a selection of his critical comments on literature and his own place in it. As might be expected, the main interest of these writings is that they illuminate new facets of his usual subject matter.”—The New York Times Book Review
“A new single work for American readers that stands among the very finest.”—The Nation
